Cathy Peters

Views of the shoreline from Cathy Peters’ lakeside studio have resulted in soothing watercolour and acrylic works that have spirit and reveal an experienced artist’s interpretation of feelings, emotions and artistic individuality.

ARTIST STATEMENT:

The art I create is a soulful and interactive expression of life around me and reflects the subject and feeling of the moment. The process “from soul to hand” is my attempt to express those moments on paper or canvas in shapes and colours to create a visual
impact that I hope the viewer enjoys.

As an artist, my goal is to create a feeling in a painting that echoes an expression of moods, emotions and artistic individuality and to rely on the viewer to complete the visual interpretation.
